Child booster seats are being recalled because they could open unexpectedly, posing a fall risk, according to news reports.
Target Corporation, in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, announced a voluntary recall of a popular child booster seat Wednesday.
“The recall affects about 375,000 Circo Child Booster Seats sold at Target stores between 2005 and 2009. The seat’s restraint buckle can open unexpectedly, allowing a child to fall from the chair and be injured,” according to the news report.
So far, 10 people have reported incidents in which the booster seat buckles failed. Three of those incidents resulted in minor injuries including bumps and bruises, according to news reports.
As a Columbia personal injury attorney , I’m glad no one serious injuries have occurred to children as a result of this recalled product. I hope this company can successfully recall these items before any more injuries occur.
While we don’t handle this type of recall we feel that it’s important to educate the community that there has been a recall to help protect your safety. If you have been injured in a recall like this you might wish to contact a Charleston personal injury lawyer who can help.
